Okay, so for those that don't say FreeCache the reason is it is for **extremely** new shows - shows approved within the last 5 hours.

Regardless of whether or not a show has made it to a FreeCache yet, downloading via the link on the website will help other users get faster speeds, whereas downloading via FTP will not.

So this might explain a small percentage of downloads that end up going over FTP. What about the rest? I'm real curious. Is it a convenience thing? I would like to figure out a way to give users whatever they like about FTP, but using FreeCache.

I dunno...I could be wrong, but it seems that I've tried to download shows that were not "5 hours old" (so to speak), and found that they didn't say freecache either. Can't point to an example at the moment.

Okay - if that's the case, I think there might be a bug somewhere. Next time you run across something like that, please post and let me know. I greatly appreciate it :)

I'm downloading this show los1997-09-06 with my download manager (iGetter 1.9.5). The url for the show appears as http://etree10.archive.org/5/audio/los1997-09-06_lhsb.shnf.zip. The speed is at between 11 and 13 Kb/s. If I use ftp, I'll probably get close to 20 Kb/s. I try to use freecache whenever possible....amazing speeds....but it's never been available for everything.

On the other hand, if I go to the download options page for the los1997-09-06 show, and enter each individual file into my download manager, I get speeds between 15-20 Kb/s, (sometimes it creeps up to as much as 35) which is right around what I'd get using ftp.

I'm downloading the Mason Jennings 2-21-03 show, again using iGetter 1.9.5 by loading each file individually from the download options page, and all of the files have a url that says "freecache" with the exception of mason2003-02-21d1t01.shn, the md5 files and the info file.
